It’s ironic, isn’t it, that as we hurtle, head-over-heels, into the digital age, we are increasingly taking comfort from the old fashioned, the folksy, the blindingly familiar?

Passionforpattern can sense a counter revolution in the air….
Take two highly original, creative minds, one steeped in textiles, the other in ceramics. Mix with plenty of inspiration. Bake in the heat of a provencal summer. Serve. The result? A wonderfully satisfying combination of breathtaking pattern, on both fabrics and earthenware that are the result of a collaboration between Patrick Frey of Pierre Frey and Vincent Buffile. The lingering impression? Utter, mouthwatering bliss…prices of the new Baku, Leo, Ondes, Concorde, Rameaux and Thessali, start at £96, the ceramics from £500.
